Although I don’t wear makeup every day, I do enjoy using it. And I’m not alone there! Women have been using cosmetics for thousands of years, and there are many reasons why. Here are my top Reasons Why Makeup Can Be Really Good for You …
1. Ego Boost
Do you know that feeling when you find the perfect lipstick for you? And you know that every time you put it on, you feel really good? If you feel good, you look good. So, it's wonderful all around, not to mention dozens of compliments you are bound to receive the day you are wearing your favorite makeup. So, why not to do this more often? Makeup is good for you, so just apply your favorite tried products, look gorgeous and get that major self confidence boost on the way!

2. Skin Protection
Using a foundation or tinted moisturiser containing sun protection will help protect your skin from Sun damage. It's also believed that foundation provides protection against pollution, which is as important as SPF protection especially if you live in a bigger city. Environmental pollution is as harmful to the skin as the UVA, UVB rays and can cause premature aging. So why not take precaution and put on that foundation or tinted moisturizer in the morning. And not only it will be protecting your skin, it will also be making your skin look flawless and picture perfect!

3. Quick And Easy
It doesn’t have to take ages to put on your makeup. A simple makeup routine can make quite a difference, adding a little bit of polish to your looks.
Go for the basics:
- foundation or tinted moisturizer, if your skin is on the perfect side (3 minutes)
- natural looking blush to highlight your beautiful cheekbones (1 minute)
- a little bit of an eyeliner on the top eyelid, as close to your eyelashes as possible and in between the lashes to make them look fuller (2 minutes)
- 2 layers of mascara (2 minutes)
- a touch of lipgloss or lipstick to play up your pretty lips (1 minute)
9 minutes total and you will have one extra minute to make sure everything looks perfect, there are no smudges and all the lines are blended well. Unless you work in an industry where appearance is very important, less is more, so keeping it simple means that it won’t take long to do your makeup. With practice you'll be able to get this simple makeup routine under 9 minutes! Now, who doesn't have 9 minutes in the morning to look more beautiful the enitre day?
